A quick update about the weekend

So this weekend was awesome. I could spend a long time explaining the tiny details, but I don’t have a lot of time right now.

Saturday: On Saturday I ended up saying ‘screw it’ and with the help of Joe and my parents, decided to do the Intro category race. It was a circuit race. The first lap was coached, and then the second lap was racing. I had no problems at all, really. The hardest thing I had to do was be good at going slow for the first lap! In the second, real lap, I ended up coming into my own. I ended up being in the front of the pack the majority of the time, but when it came to the end of the lap, everyone had energy to spare… Sandbaggers! My finish was 11th, out of 23.

On Sunday, I did the criterium race, and it went really well. It was 5 laps of racing, and one or so laps of just coaching. I jumped right on the bandwagon, knowing I could do much better than the previous day. That being said, I finished third. I would have finished first if it weren’t for having sprinted a lap too early! (haha, the updated, embarrassing version!) I now know that I can not only race proficiently, but I have some strength, too. woohoo!

This post constantly gets thrown aside. If you checked this post earlier, it was longer and full of links. Now, after wordpress deleted part of this post, I had to re-update. That makes me sad. I will add more later, I guess.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You were awesome on Sunday! You had your ‘cycling face’ on during the race and we knew that you were ‘back’…! Now you need to go to the DOUBLE and ditch the triple crank.. hmmm dreaming of DuraAce?!! It will probably shed some weight on the bike too right? Dad and I are so proud of your amazing comeback in cycling. Look out racers .. Dougtales is back!
